Wow, I’m back in Amsterdam! Of course I am very grateful that I was able to spend so much quality time with my father, but I am also very happy to be able to lead ‘my own life’ again. I will stay at home for the first few weeks, keep my distance and be very careful. But being able to walk, cycle and swim in the canals again soon, that feels like a lot of freedom.
After three months of living out of my carry-on suitcase (see ‘Did you know …?’), I’m really looking forward to expanding my wardrobe slightly, among other things! 🙂
I broke a record too. In the past 15 years, I have never been in one place for more than 6 weeks, but I have just been in Miami for 7 weeks. And now that all events and trips have been canceled in the near future, who knows how long I will stay in Amsterdam?
I often think of the olive grove I bought in Puglia, Italy in February. The idea was that I could finalize the sale with the notary in April. When that can now happen is a mystery, but I still want it and fortunately I have good connections with the people in Italy.
On another note, my birthday is coming up soon. On the 28th of June I’m turning 50. I had planned a party for all my friends, but because that can’t go ahead, I’m going to do something EVEN MORE FUN… I’m going to give away 50 awesome gifts. Just like that! You’ll hear more about this in three weeks.
